Dear FreeMind users,
we decided to publish a pure bug fix release that makes FreeMind compatible with Java6.
There are only very few changes:
* Bug fix: Preferences dialog can be opened with Java 6
* Bug fix: Encrypted nodes and maps work with Java 6
We hope that you enjoy it,
we proudly present the new release FreeMind Version 0.8.0.
It has taken a lot of time to finish the elaborate Undo and Plugin mechanism s which have turned FreeMind into a professional application.
You can get a summary of new features under
Main new features include:
* Many new exports and imports (among others: jpeg, png, new html exports, PDF, MindManager 5)
* new layout and movable nodes (thanks to Dimitri)
* Preferences dialog
* new menu structure
* new local hyperlinks... read more
we have the pleasure to announce that FreeMind has become today part of the
Debian distribution, under unstable/contrib.

and call (as root):
apt-get install freemind... read more
On February 19th 2004, FreeMind reached historical rank 9 at SourceForge. This is not such a big surprise as new version has been released recently. Furthermore, the download rates have been keeping at slightly under 400 per day even before the new version has been released.
the new version 0.7.1 is out with the following new features
(see also the online-documentation):
* auto-saving mechanism
* graphical links between different nodes in the same map
* clouds around nodes
* new windows installer thanks to Andrew
Thanks to all the volunteers that helped to improve this release.
On October 13th, FreeMind reached historical rank 12, with approx. 700 downloads and 2500 page views. It will be probably difficult to outperform this rank in the near future.
Recently, FreeMind has reached historical rank 48 among Source Forge applications. That means that FreeMind appeared among 50 most active Source Forge projects, where the activity is measured by the number of downloads. It may have been caused by the fact that a new version has been released, so the number is not completely representative.
Thanks to the work of developers Dimitri Polivaev and Christian Foltin, new version of FreeMind features icons and better support of images. As users wanted, it is now possible to create short multiline nodes.
